Blue Apron

Happy Sunday, everyone!
 
SPOILER ALERT: There’s a giveaway at the bottom of the page! :)
 
You know I sometimes have to break the regular format of Best of the Menu when I’ve got something cool to share or something food-related to praise. This week, Blue Apron falls into that category. Haven’t heard of it? Here, we’ll let them explain it…
 

 
I’m obsessed with this service for a few specific reasons:

  1. The delivery comes straight to my door. Yes, I still go to the grocery store, but for only a couple bags of items per week. I’m no longer lugging 8 bags up to my apartment.
  2. I’m cooking things I would’ve never thought to cook otherwise – I have six options per week and I get to pick the three that sound good to me.
  3. Since I live alone, the¬†two-person/three-meal option per week is perfect: I make dinner one night and take the leftovers to work for lunch the next day – so I’m really getting six meals!

Without further adieu, here’s an example of opening a box and making one of my fabulous dishes I’ve had in the past couple weeks…

The ingredients are labeled and pre-portioned per recipe, so it's incredibly easy to sort and figure out which items go with which dish

A favorite so far! I've already gone to the grocery store to buy the ingredients to make it again!
